Hello everyone, I would like support from everyone and since I am very grateful.

When I got to work yesterday, my server had all the files changed for the .crypt extension, and in each folder there was a file called how_to_back_files.html (see attached image).

Searching, I saw that this is a variant of Global Ransomware discovered by Brad Duncan and described at this link: http://malware-traffic-analysis.net/2017/05/03/index2.html

Once again, I would like your help to solve this problem.

All the latest versions of GlobeImposter are not decryptable. ID Ransomware may have not picked up on it only because *.crypt is such a generic extension, it causes false-positives (it should have picked up the ransom note itself though).

Nope, it is not decryptable per Fabian Wosar. You can only restore from backups, or pay the ransom (not recommended).

 

Moving forward, lock down RDP*, and have better backups.

 

*Sorry, I think GlobeImposter is pushed through spam emails still. Some cases have been RDP brute-forcing though. It's almost the most common vector of attack anymore.

There is an ongoing discussion in this topic victims you can post comments, ask questions and seek further assistance. Other victims have been directed there to share information, experiences and suggestions.Rather than have everyone with individual topics, it would be best (and more manageable for staff) if you posted any more questions, comments or requests for assistance in the above support topic discussion...it includes experiences by experts, a variety of IT consultants, end users and company reps who have been affected by ransomware infections. To avoid unnecessary confusion, this topic is closed.

Thanks
